Oh, forty days and forty nights
Of rain could not wash off my guilt
Lord, a better man than I would end my life too
God, what cowardice to run and face no justice

What can I do? Where can I go?
The ends of the earth aren’t even enough
Take me away, never look back
Find me a place where I can stay lost

I bought a ticket to God-knows-where
But He better not find me there
The things that I have done I can’t undo
Wish I could roll it back and start brand new

My life is so strange
Why must I always sin and never seem to change
How many lives would it take
To counterbalance all I’ve done in selfishness and hate?

I could have sworn its barely noon
And yet the darkness has come all too soon
All passengers seem to have gone
Now I can’t remember getting on

This train is so strange
We never stop and no one seems to change
Where does this end? I just don’t know
The platforms come and go and we don’t slow

You don’t believe? No one cares
The ghost train’s pulling up to take you there
If you live by the devil, you’ll pay his fare
All change for the last stop to his lair
